Pamela Dowling was born on September 14, 1951 in Jacksonville, FL to Ralph and Marjorie Dowling. Although her father was a commercial airline pilot, which caused a couple of moves throughout the state of Florida, Pam considered herself to be a Bay County native and graduated from Bay High School in 1969. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of West Florida and later retired from the Florida Department of Children and Families after many faithful years of dedicated service.
Pam was preceded in death by her loving parents, her brother Michael, and many beloved furbabies, most recently Pepper, Tebow, and Rosie. She is survived by her sister Judy Dowling, niece Jessica Sanchez (David), her great-nephew Connor, Aunt Nell Poyner, cousins Gayle & Higdon Swatts, Jimmy & Linda Poyner, Diana & Bill Huggins, Russell & Laurie Poyner, and many other relatives and friends.
Graveside funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at Evergreen Memorial Gardens with Rev. David Hecht officiating.
